When you take a look at the sport of hockey, skating is a huge fundamental of the sport. EA has taken that to heart and has worked on their engine to simulate the skating more effectively. They have provided two different videos where they talk about top-speed, momentum, and how speed versus control plays a part in it. If you are a fan of hockey and the video games, then you should take a look at these to see how EA is looking to bring the sport of hockey to the top of their game. It looks like they have done their due diligence to get the skating to feel more dynamic.
